Last week I taught a cooking class for residents of a low income housing community. It went really well and I loved all the participants. At the end of class they asked me if I would come back (of course I agreed!) and one woman begged me to do a healthy dessert class. Like many children, her daughter has a sweet tooth, so the mom is desperate for healthy ways to satisfy that adorable little girl’s cravings. This chocolate mousse (adapted from Rocco DiSpirito’s “Now Eat This! Diet”) just might do the trick. It may be “diet” dessert, but it doesn’t taste like diet food!I received a copy of Rocco’s new book in the mail last week and knew the instant I saw this dessert that it would be the first recipe I’d try. I wouldn’t say that I’m a chocolate addict like lots of my friends, but once a month I definitely get a serious craving (if you know what I mean!). This is that time, and I’ve been looking for a way to feed my craving. For all you vegans out there, this is also a great way to satisfy your own cravings. It’s kind of a vegan chocolate pudding recipe!

Imagine a buttery chocolate pastry crust so crisp you hear it snap as you cut into it with the side of a fork. It’s filled with sweet yet tangy homemade raspberry jam that’s smothered in a rich chocolate ganache filling tasting like the most expensive chocolate pudding in the world. The creamy chocolate goodness is topped with plump and juicy raspberries that spurt juice into your mouth with every bite, and finished with the finest dusting of powdered sugar, like the sprinkling of the last snow of the season.
Now stop imagining, because I promise, you can make this!
